    I was actually able to make the botany club meeting. Here is the scoop:
    The main idea of this group is mostly like ours: getting together to talk about & ID plants. This group will mainly look at various ecosystems at south platte park. They will meet in the classroom building, just south of the Carson Nature Center. 2nd & 4th Wed of each month, 5 to 7PM. I know many of us (including myself) work until 5, but they will leave a note on the classroom telling people where they are going, so even if late, I think it will be worth it.
    The people who will be there or leading the walks are really great botanists, and had great stories about the plants we looked at yesterday.

    Exanple: to tell the difference between golden currant and american black currant, look at the back of the leaves. The american currant has yellow dots on the back, and golden currant does not!

    I will continue to post these meetings ont his board. Everyone is welcomed, even if sporadically. See you there!

    This sounds like a fun idea. I'm assuming it's going to be a recurring thing? I can't make this one due to having a night class on Mondays & Wednesdays, but hopefully in the future!
